Amazing sculptures at the Villa. M is in the foreground

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

  1. Is this a museum or a private villa, Zakiah ?

    Dear Michel,
    This is a villa owned by the Paul Getty family. He was one of the richest men in the world, owning oil fields in Oklahoma (US) and in Saudi Arabia. He started collecting rare furniture pieces and paintings of great artists, along with beautiful sculptures of Greek and Roman ancient times. He had them stored in his villa in Malibu, Los Angeles, and transferred much of the over 600 pieces of paintings, sculptures and furniture to the main museum which is in downtown LA, California.
    This museum that I have pictures here, are from his villa which is now a museum also, though it is not as large as the main museum,. It is a beautiful place, and sits on top of a hill over looking the Pacific ocean. You can read about him on Google. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Paul_Getty
    Love,
    Zakiah.
